A Women of Wool.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your lovely votes, comments, awards and marvellous mod's on my silly Sunday moon image, much appreciated.

Today, a rework of an image from a Turkish carpet factory. The raw wool has to sorted before any manufacturing can take place. She's also there for those who wish to take pictures. So, I took this one. Smile (Another exercise in Black and white conversion.)

All the best to all and have a good day.

I don't know about Chatham, but in London there are now Turkish barber shops popping up everywhere.
This lady would do well there.
Interesting shot John.

We have a couple of Turkish restaurants, Colin and there's a barber somewhere in the area. Whether or not there are English restaurants and barbers in Turkey is another thingSmile

Great black and white that makes the most of every shade.

When I first pick up a camera way back a friend said "take away the colour and you start to see the subject". This has become more so the older I got.

Wool from Turkey? Bernard Matthews missed a trick there. He'd have had Turkey jumpers
on sale next to his Turkey Twizzlers if he'd known SmileSmile
